Event held by Domingues e Pinho Contadores together with Tocantins Advogados addressed the main topics of the law that will come into force as of November.
About eighty (80) people representing clients of the two companies attended the workshop " Labor Reform: The Major Law Changes and Modernization Opportunities", held on August 25 in São Paulo, to hear the labor lawyer Bruno Tocantins talk about the most sensitive aspects of the law and those that should promote a new stage in relations between employers and employees in Brazil.
According to the lawyer, public organizations and trade unions are studying some aspects of the new law, but it does not mean that will open ways for essential changes to what has been proposed. "Some adaptations may occur through a provisional measure, but it might remain exactly what is stated in the law which will be effective from November. We must wait. We know that this law came to stay, although there is pressure from public ministry agencies and justice.", he says.
Tocantins mentioned the aspects that have been discussed: the pregnant women exposure in unhealthy environments; termination of intermittent employment relationship agreements and penalties for both sides in these agreements; the validity of individual agreements on 12h x 36h working hours; compensation amount for moral damages; non-requirement of exclusivity in self-employed persons agreements and, finally, the continuity of union representation in some cases.
Manuel Domingues e Pinho, CEO of DPC, shares the lawyer’s analysis. "We know that there should be pressure from Justice and unions representatives, as they should lose a bit of their force. However, we are convinced that the new law is a step forward and that free trade is the way. The core of this law, in my opinion, is the improvement of labor relations. This is not the reform we would like, but it is a progress", concluded the businessperson.
The lawyer Bruno Tocantins 2:30 long exposé had a different dynamic, marked by several questions from the audience. Focusing on the practice of most companies, Tocantins spoke about the improvements introduced by Law 13,467, taking from the shadows issues, such as the actual time the employee devotes to the company, the establishment of resting periods, bonuses and other non-salary nature remuneration, the employment relationship agreements of self-employed persons, employees who work remotely (for home-office) and disease and accidents prevention of policies, which now became compulsory for companies.
